Here are photos of the cover I have just made for my Kindle – hope you like it.

The fabric for the outside cover is from a range called Hometown by Moda and the inside patchwork is from the Etchings Charm Pack from Moda. I bought the selection from The BramblePatch – an excellent patchwork supplier.


United States reading challenge

This is based on books read since the beginning of 2010 and covering books set in a particular state within the United States of America. They are all fiction and many of them are crime or thrillers – though some are not. The map below shows which states I have ‘completed’ so far. Will update later and may also post a list of the novels read.

Spotted a book today by Donna Tartt called The Little Friend and thought I might try it. Seems to be set in Mississippi so that would also help with the States Challenge I set myself. Having not had any for Mississippi till now I suddenly discover several. As well as the above, the latest Lee Child (Jack Reacher 18) called The Affair is also set there, as is an old John Grisham one I discovered hidden in the garage (the Last Juror). So that’s Mississippi sorted – if and when I get them all read.
